Avocado Chicken Tacos – $5 Dinner Challenge

Posted By Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom On September 20, 2010 @ 5:10 pm In $5 Dinner Challenge,chicken,Dairy Free,Gluten Free,Recipes | 12 Comments

So I made these a few weeks ago…and I’m so sorry it took me so long to get them posted.  I used 2 of the smaller peppers from my garden, along with some of my cherry-like tomatoes.

And avocados. *swoon*

And I think these would be just as great with ground beef or ground turkey tacos.  Love the different flavor and texture that the avocado chunks brought to these tacos!
